Growing Calendar for Perennial Border Collection - Bare Root 1x6
Delivery: Early February to Late March
Super-value and harmonious collection of colour contrasting perennials that you can add to your border for a dazzling flower display year after year. Includes one plant each of Chelone obliqua, Crocosmia Lucifer, Helenium Red Shades, Rudbeckia fulgida Goldsturm, Sedum Matrone and Phlox paniculata.
These bare-root varieties arrive to you as bare-root plants fully labelled with their roots surrounded by a polythene bag to give the roots a good, humid environment.
Bare-root plants are perfect for you to plant in the ground or in containers anytime from autumn to spring. The head of leaves and stems will burst into leaf and flower from next spring, and a good root network which will establish in the ground over winter.
Remove the polythene bag and water the root area of your bare-root plant on arrival. Try to plant straight away but if this is not possible your plant will survive up to two or three days with its roots buried in some loose moist soil. Keep out of direct-sun until permanently planted.
Once planted in rich, moist soil provide a thick layer of compost on the surface around the plant will keep the soil area warm and the roots stimulated for over winter.
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
